This is the third time Lovell has made the list of the 100 fastest growing veteran-owned companies.

PENSACOLA, FL, USA, February 28, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Lovell Government Services was ranked second on the annual Vet100 list, a compilation of the nation’s fastest growing veteran-owned businesses. The ranking, created in partnership with Inc. Magazine and the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) at Syracuse University, was born from the iconic Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies based in the USA. Both distinctions are considered characteristics of entrepreneurial success.
Originally established as the Vet50 list, the list was expanded in 2020 to include 100 veteran-owned businesses in recognition of the growing culture and success of veteran entrepreneurs.
“Lovell is honored to be recognized among so many veteran-owned businesses and we thank the IVMF for celebrating veteran entrepreneurship. Many veterans find their purpose in business where they can apply the same dedication and resilience they learned during their service. From the first day of basic training, veterans learn to take care of each other. We are proud to be part of the veteran-owned business community,” said Chris Lovell, CEO and Founder of Lovell Government Services.
Lovell Government Services is a rapidly growing Disabled Veterans Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) named as Inc.’s fastest growing private company. 5000 in the government services category in 2021. They partner with medical and pharmaceutical companies looking to increase their revenue stream, win government contracts, and serve veteran and military patient populations. Lovell wins government contracts for vendors by finding opportunities, placing bids, and managing all subsequent communications, negotiations, and inquiries. Partnering with an SDVOSB allows companies to support veterans and help government customers meet their requirements for federal earmarked funds.
“Economic prosperity is so important to so many aspects of American life, from home and high street to even our standing in the world,” says Scott Omelianuk, Inc., editor. “Given that prosperity is driven by small businesses and given, we now know, the impact that veteran founders have on this small business, we can only continue to recognize them and tell them, one more times, thank you for your service.”
“All seasoned entrepreneurs bring a unique set of skills and proven knowledge to the business world as a result of their military service,” said Mike Haynie, vice chancellor of Syracuse University and founder and executive director of the IVMF. “This year’s list reflects the courage and resilience that veterans demonstrate every day, experiencing tremendous growth in a dynamic and challenging business environment. Our partnership with Inc. magazine is key to highlighting the success of these veteran-owned businesses.
Vet100 winners will be formally recognized at the Vet100 Awards Dinner and Ceremony at the IVMF Veteran Entrepreneurship Success Summit in Washington, DC.
